The Best Homemade Keto Pecan Pie

Keto Pecan Pie

yield: 8 SERVINGS

prep time: 1 HOUR 30 MINUTES

cook time: 40 MINUTES

total time: 2 HOURS 10 MINUTES

Ingredients

Pie Crust:

  • 1 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 5 tablespoons grass-fed butter
  • 2 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream

Pie Filling:

  • 4 tablespoons grass fed butter
  • 7 tablespoons Swerve Brown Sugar
  • 2 cups pecans halves
  • 1/2 cup syrup
  • 1 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 eggs

Directions

1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2

To make your crust, in a large bowl whisk flours, baking powder, nutmeg, and cinnamon.  Add 5 tablespoons of butter and with a pastry blender cut into your flour making sure the butter is mixed throughout.

3

In a small bowl, whisk together egg whites, cold water, and sour cream.  Slowly add liquids to your flour mixture and mix together to form a ball of dough.

4

Once a ball of dough is formed, wrap in plastic wrap and chill dough for 1 hour.  The dough is better to work with when chilled.

5

Remove dough and place the dough ball in a 9" pie pan and spread out covering the bottom and sides. You should have enough to pinch the sides some. Do NOT fork this pie crust. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

6

In a medium saucepan on medium heat, add 4 tablespoons of butter, Swerve brown sugar, and pecans.  Let swerve dissolve into the butter for about 5 minutes stirring occasionally.

7

Add in syrup and heavy whipping cream and bring to a boil for 15-20 minutes.  This will start the caramelization portion you will want. Stir occasionally to prevent scorching.

8

Once your filling has thickened, remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes before adding the eggs.  This is a very important part. You do NOT want the filling to be boiling but you still want it to be warm.  Add 2 eggs into your filling and whisk fast to mix the eggs into the filling.

9

Pour filling into the pie crust and bake on the BOTTOM rack of oven for 40-50 minutes. You do not want your pie to be wavy, you want the center to be a little jiggly but have a solid form.  After baking, set on top of the stove and let cool to room temperature before serving.

10

You can add extra pecans for garnish and/or homemade whipped cream.

keto pecan pie with whipped cream

Yes, really. We’ve made the classic pecan pie KETO-FRIENDLY! 

A low-carb pecan pie without all the sugar and carbs?! Go ahead and have a slice of heaven with this keto pecan pie. I served this up and no one believed it was Keto. It’s THAT good.

During the holiday season, I love serving pecan pie. It’s rich and delicious, and usually filled with an endless amount of sugar. Well, now I can still add the pecan pie to the dessert table without any guilt. This keto pecan pie comes in at only 4 net carbs per serving.

From the candied pecans to the buttery flaky crust, it’s literally heaven in a pie pan.

Hip Tips:

  • A lot of pecan pie recipes pour the pecans into the pie crust first, and then pour the caramel sauce over. I instead opted to boiled the pecans in the butter sauce first to make sure the pecans got well combined with all of that sweet goodness.
  • Do NOT fork your pie crust as this pie has a filling that you won’t want to seep through.
  • If you’re like me and love baking pies, go ahead and make the investment in a Pie Crust Shield. There is nothing worse than having that perfect pie with a burnt crust.
  • How can you tell if your Pecan Pie is done? You will want the center to give you a little jiggle but still be stable (kinda like the consistency of JELLO). If you pull your pie out and it gives you the wavy movement, you will need to bake for a little longer.

Don’t be alarmed by the high total carb count!

Fiber and erythritol (the main ingredient in Swerve) do not affect blood sugar in the same way that regular carbs do, so we’ve subtracted them from the total carb count. You’ll see that the net carbs are much lower once you remove the sugar alcohols and fiber.

    Does syrup in the recipe mean maple syrup or some other lower carb syrup?

    • Cassandra (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Kathy! The syrup mentioned in the recipe refers to the Lakanto Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup mentioned above. Hope that helps!
